Ghana’s Supreme Court has dismissed an appeal by the opposition to annul President John Mahama’s narrow victory in last year’s disputed election.

The NPP had alleged that Mr Mahama won the election fraudulently, a charge his NDC party denied.

NPP leader Nana Akufo-Addo told the BBC he was disappointed but accepted the verdict and urged his supporters to do likewise.

Ghana is generally seen as a beacon of democracy in the region.

The case was broadcast live on television and radio in a rare sign of judicial transparency in Africa, says the BBC’s Akwasi Sarpong in the capital, Accra.
